I am the new kid on the block. I have been trying to research everything about the new TV's. I want a big screen tv. I especially want a wide screen tv, because I watch a lot of DVD's and they seem to be made for 16:9 mode. I am really confused about HDTV and digital tv. At present time I have analog cable. I have been reading about different receivers that are needed for HDTV signals and digital signals and two different satellites and land antenas, etc. I have also read that HDTV is not that wide spread right now. I guess my main question is will analog cable give me a decent picture with a widescreen TV on "just" or "full" mode? I keep hearing about Direct TV for digital feeds. If I would subscribe to direct tv, does it come with a receiver for the HDTV and the digital feeds? That is it for now....Please help me get on the right track.
